KENTUCKY - Texting behind the wheel is now illegal in Kentucky.
Governor Steve Beshear signed the bill into law this Thursday morning.
The law bans texting for drivers of all ages while vehicles are moving, but drivers under the age of 18 have tighter restrictions-- they're not allowed to use the phone at all while driving.
Law enforcement officers will issue warnings until January 1st of next year.
after that, violators will be fined $25 for a first offense and $50 for each time after that.
